READ Around the City


The first annual Read Around the City event was successful. Over 30 students enjoyed the time to read and share great books with fellow readers. The next Read Around the City will be held October 24th at the Rockford Dam. A bus will take the readers to their location and bring them back to school by 4:30. Students need to make ride arrangements home from school.
